    Bush will be the most important piece to our O along side the QB. he will line up in the backfield, and probably split out wide a fair amount of times. i expect him to be our offensive MVP and in the "probowl" when the season comesto an end.

    That prediction is not bad at all, I definately see this new spread offense benefiting Reggie Bush's ability to be dynamic in open space. It will allow him to be more of a pass catcher which we all know he's better than some WR's on our team... which is kinda disturbing.

    I really hope to see the Dolphins use more screen passes and expose other team's LB's who are assigned to Bush when he goes out in a pass route. No more of that 2 WR set and Bush getting spyed by the Slot CB, with more WR's out in formation that will force team's to assign LB's on Bush.

    I can't wait for the offseason to be over... Once we get into the preseason we can expand more of the new dolphins coaching scheme and look at position battles.

    For once I predict the coaching staff to fill our roster with players that can contribute consistantly, not just have a bunch of guys that hustle but come up short.

    QB position battle will be interesting no doubt - Matt Moore, Chad Henne, Jason Campbell, Peyton Manning or Matt Flynn??? What other free agent QB's are there, Drew Brees?

    RB position battle is pretty much intact - Reggie Bush, Daniel Thomas, Steve Slaton or Richard Meldin??? Should we bring back Larry Johnson?

    WR position battle - outside of Marshall all we have are slot receivers, this position worries me the most because we are now a spread offense. Without the right personel we cant spread a defense out in order to be effective. Draft Justin Blackmon/Top tier WR, bring in free agents like Dwayne Bowe, Vincent Jackson, Pierre Garcon or Desean Jackson?

    TE position battle - will be scary if we don't get someone to complement Anthony Fasano, would we rebuild that position with younger talent or does the QB situation effect his performance more than we think?

    OL position battle - will be more about fixing the right side of the offensive line at RG and RT. I noticed people mentioning Ben Grubbs as a free agent but in my opinion John Jerry or Vernon Carey show promise at either position.

    DL position battle - will be more about depth and adding a polished DE to go opposite Cameron Wake in the 4-3 base formation. Will Kendall Langford be resigned and moved to DT? Jared Odrick and Phillip Merling could also play either DE/DT but can they provided consistant pass rush going up against the less athletic opposing teams RT at DE?

    LB position battle - seems ok with Karlos Dansby at MLB and Kevin Burnett filling the void at Weakside OLB but how will they transition with the base 4-3 defense? The Strongside OLB needs to be able to handle penetration in run support, I don't see anybody who can handle that responsiblity on this current roster.

    DB position battle - needs the most upgrades on defense, Yeremiah Bell at SS will be a natural fit and leader on defense we desperately need. Will this coaching staff revisit Chris Clemons at FS, Reshad Jones didn't impress me and seemed out of place most of last year. The CB position outside of Vontae Davis, Sean Smith and Will Allen needs depth and more coaching up. Does Sean Smith fit better as a nickle back? Can Will Allen hold up another year? Do we bring in a free agent or draft another prospect? How about Jimmy Wilson development in the new defensive system, will he take steps back in the learning process?

    List of Dolphins best players (Contracted/Free Agents) IMO these are players we should build our franchise around but I understand we might not be able to afford them all. Keep inmind the talent on this team after the starting position takes a dramatic drop, looking at the current roster the gap between starters isn't that much and the position I put them in are IMO of importance to the franchise.

    I agree with most of the grades but some I must rebuttal.

    Craplombo is a solid F nothing more.

    Gates would brandish and incomplete in my opinion, there isn't enough evidence to grade him, the same could be said about Clay (I'm not saying they go, I think you keep them).

    Bell is a C+ simply due to age and if he restructures you keep him if not (even though it creates another void to fill) you cut him.

    Fasano is a B tight end, man never gets enough respect for what he does.

    Soliai should be retained in my opinion but I think he has to be moved in order to clear a path for QB. It's honestly too bad he will be missed regardless of 43 or 34 defense.

    Awesome feedback NY8123, I think your right about Fasano, Craplombo but keep in mind our depth earned Bell his high grade if it weren't for him imagine how bad our secondary really would have been. As far as Clay he was a surprise last year, i trusted if they cut Polite for him that he must be better than expected and to me he turned out alright for a rookie.

    I do not want to see Bell go. I want him to restructure and stay one or two more years tops and retire a Phin. The need to address Free Safety this off-season is much greater than SS.

    Offensively you have 1) QB 2) RT
    Defensively you have 1) FS 2) DE/LB (34 or 43 dependent).

    You move Jones back to SS to back up Bell and this also gives you time to address this need next season assuming Jones plays as ****y in the SS position as he did in the FS roll. If you bring in a guy like Nelson in from Cinci (which is a huge upgrade over Jones/Clemons/Culver it makes Bell more expendable because now you can fill the SS need via the draft in the later rounds but the tandem of Bell/Nelson with Jones/Culver backing them up would be spectacular in my opinion.

    And yes you are right about Clay, I think in the right system the kid has huge potential. I can not wait to see how he fits into the new offense.

    I expect Clay to be used as a H-back, we can use him as a TE when employing mutiple receiver sets or just a traditional lead blocker.

    It will be interesting to see how Mike Sherman throws wrinkles in our offense, we could see Clay utilized more as a pass catcher which he has proven he can catch the rock!!! HAHA he was almost better than Hartline in 2011 HAHA!!!

    Total Rec - 16
    Total Yards - 233
    Avg Yards per catch - 14.6
    Longest catch - 46 yards
    YAC - 5.1
    TDs - 3
